General Tools & Instruments: Thermal Imaging Cameras
The Predator Series Thermal Imaging Cameras (GTi10/20/30/50) are ideal for revealing hidden heat- or cold-driven processes and problems, the company said. The cameras can detect very small temperature differences from a distance by converting an object’s invisible infrared radiation to a visible color image. The visual thermal signatures help diagnose equipment malfunctions and poor performance. The cameras generate powerful, convincing images (called thermograms) and related data that help contractors and technicians document findings, design solutions, and convince clients or managers to authorize the recommended repairs. Temperature data are displayed numerically and as an infrared colorized thermal image. The user can assign a range of colors to signify specific temperature ranges. On-camera analysis tools increase operator efficiency by allowing real-time access to and collection of all relevant data. Included software enables more detailed analysis, such as data interpretation and two-dimensional image or video creation.
